When the site launched in 2009, though, it wasn't exactly greeted with copious attention. This is before the likes of Double Fine and other loved developers ever graced the platform. In this early era, Steve Jenkins Kickstarted the first video game High Strangeness to the tune of $1,559. It sounds like a pittance now but remember that the funding audience was very low back then."
